A sunny day - a good book - perfect.... just about sums it up for me.
This picture is a combination of applique, embroidery and quilting, all done by hand. The quaint lady was sourced from one of my favourite Art to Heart books. The little quilt is handpieced from tiny little scraps. A few of my ever present little hearts and a raid of my button tin and this little treasure was complete.
On a cream linen background with fine wool batting, the picture has been stapled onto a wooden frame ready for hanging.
